Looking for a way to trace transactions from a single table/journal

I have a table with 4-5M records. My task is to identify all of the transactions from the orgin. 

Get all the "To" from A
The get all fo the "To" from the result
Next level, next level, etc.. until I have all of the data

 

DateIDFromToUSD
1-Jan1AC $  700.00
2-Jan2AB $  200.00
2-Jan3BC $  900.00
5-Jan4CD $  600.00
6-Jan5AD $  500.00
7-Jan6BC $  400.00
7-Jan7CA $  300.00
10-Jan8DC $  800.00
11-Jan9BA $  100.00
11-Jan10EC $  400.00

 

The result for person A might be

 

A sent to C, B, D
C sent to D, A

B sent to C
D sent to C

 

I attempted this a number of times using Power Query in different ways and I am stumped. Its not a static data set. I went the route of merging and could do a couple of levels before getting jammed up. Wondering if someone has done something like this before and could point me in the right direction.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Your expected result is just not clear.  In the expected result section, you say the "result for person A" - why then have you shown B to C and D to C?????.  In this question what is the use of the Date, ID and USD columns?  Do you want to see he result in a Table visual?

You can use PATH function in DAX or use a network visual
